LNP Promises Millions for Koalas, AKF Criticizes Policy

Liberal National Party leader Campbell Newman has announced plans to put aside $22.5 million to acquire koala habitats for preservation, $3.2 million for researching and $800,000 to help organisations to carry out rescue and rehabilitation services.

Ms Tabart said the real answer was to list the koala as critically endangered in southeast Queensland and vulnerable across the state. For the full story please see the link below:
